From a fabulous field of 16 finalists for the Brandon Sun’s 56th annual H.L. (Krug) Crawford Award, two runners-up stood out:

LISA BARCLAY

(Women’s Volleyball)

The 2009 Krug Crawford Award winner, Barclay’s big season was highlighted by being named a first-team all-Canadian and the most valuable player for the second straight season while leading the UBC Thunderbirds to a record-tying sixth straight CIS women’s volleyball title.

A 6-foot-2 left-side player out of Crocus Plains, Barclay is also a member of Canada’s senior women’s team and competed in the World University Games, Pan-Am Cup and the NORCECA championship.

The 21-year-old Brandonite leads the country in kills (185), kills per set (4.30) and points (216.5) this season.

SAM TUIVAI

(Men’s Volleyball)

The 24-year-old New Zealand native led the Brandon University Bobcats men’s volleyball team to its first Canada West conference title and a bronze medal at nationals in Quebec City where he was named a second-team CIS all-Canadian.

The 6-foot-4 left-side player led the conference with 4.34 kills per set and 4.89 points per set last season. Tuivai was named to the tournament all-star team at nationals and capped his 2012-13 campaign by being named BU’s male athlete of the year and team MVP.

This season, Tuivai is scoring a little less — averaging 3.54 kills per set — but his attack efficiency has improved from .222 to .246 for the Bobcats, who are ranked fifth in the country and have a 7-5 record at the Christmas break.
